of america that's not right out of rush limbaugh's dream journal. >> here is steve schmidt breaking down the election problems in a bite that sent rush limbaugh into a tear. >> we would have been much better off running against the real president obama as opposed to the sinister pretend president obama, and the total lack of credibility with some of this stuff i think is just absolutely repellent to the middle of the electorate. and then when you look at the demographics, who is rush limbaugh talking to? he is talking to a demographic that's white, 65-plus, and rural. that's not what the country looks like anymore. so you have these talk radio hosts making millions and millions and millions of dollars a year driving a message of complete and total ludicrous nonsense into the electorate. a lot of it poisonous. >> here is rush responding to that little gem right there from steve schmidt. >> you got to get a view of the republican party that is not right out of my dream journal. what folks did i or any of you have to do with the republican primary? did not murphy get the candidate he wanted

into is misidentifying the reasons that they lose. >> yesterday, steve schmidt took up the cry against the conservative entertainment complex. >> too many swing voters in the country, when you hear conservative, they think of wombs and wackos. we gave up five u.s. senate seats in the last election cycle by people who were just out there. completely extreme. manifestly unprepared for the offices that they are running for. our elected leaders are scared to death of the conservative entire at the same time complex, the shrill and divisive voices, rejecting the social extremism of the republican party on issue after issue. >> one of the leading lights of the conservative entertainment complex, talk radio host laura ingram told politico blaming talk radio for the problems in the gop elite is hilarious and typical of people who want to continue to get paid to give bad advice to campaigns. right wing anti tax, anti government crusader grover norquist believes there is exactly one person to blame for the republican defeat and it is not rush limbaugh. >> we just had an election, and the house of representatives

in the republican party can parse it, they realize they lost, they accept it. the people like steve schmidt that do this for a living, they even understand what the republican party's problem is, but you've been scouring right-wing web sites, not the crazy one, but looking at the comments and looking at the rank and file, the base reaction. i do sense that they're not going to get on board, they are not going to accept this man is president. they're still out there with conspiracy theories and the new black panther stole the election, and the elected republicans, they don't respond to the intellectuals. they respond to that same base. they are hermetically sealed in their own world where talk radio is telling them and fox news is telling them, this is not legitimate, and he is not legitimate. i fear they are still going to hold sway over a lot of house republicans. >> that is so smart. i get that from other directions, too. john nichols, that impenetrable rejection front that you hear on the radio, you heard it from rush limbaugh yesterday. could well penetrate throughout most of the caucus, talk a

values. >>> finally, last week steve schmidt said on meet the press that a lot of swing voters think of the republican party as one of loons and wackos. mike murphy, another republican strategist just weighed in on "meet the press." here he is. >> this is an existential crisis for the republican party and we have to have a brutal discussion about it. we alienate young voters because of gay marriage, we alienate hispanics and we've lost our connection to middle class economics. we have an operative class which isn't competent. we have to get a party view of america that's not out of rush limbaugh's dream journal. >> well said. up until election night these experts were predicted a romney victory. they should go down with the ship. the titanic in fact instead of putting on dresses so they can get in the life boats. how did that sound? >>> up next, replacing hillary clinton. president obama's choice may come down to john kerry or susan rice. will the president go with the 2004 democratic presidential candidate or his apparent favorite? this is "hardball," the place for politics. when yo
